f_OCUS in the Counihan Virtual Gallery

f_OCUS features works by female artists from the Merri-bek Art Collection.

This year we launched the exciting new street front art space at the Counihan Gallery In Brunswick, which will be used to display longer cycled projects, invitational curations, touring exhibitions and, importantly, regular displays of works from the Merri-bek Art Collection.

The space launched with f_OCUS: a selection of works by women from the permanent collection including key works, recent and brand-new acquisitions. Comprising photography, painting, printmaking, artist books and animation, f_OCUS also represents a range of social, political and cultural concerns and provocations, a mainstay that the Counihan Gallery pioneered and has become renowned for amongst municipal galleries and remains a feature of its annual programs and art collection.

The exhibition can be viewed in person until December 12, 2020 and online in the Counihan Virtual Gallery until December 27, 2020.
